moriarty is a collection of small classes that are useful for Objective-C and iOS projects. The repository home is at:
This category is designed to help with memory management. Specifically, this makes it easy to only work with autoreleased objects outside of a small number of ownership-allowed methods. The rules suggested for use with this category are described here.
This category enables you to treat one- or two-dimensional position parameters of a UIView like direct variables.
For example, this code will not compile:
myView.frame.origin.x += 10;
With this category, you can achieve the desired effect with code like this:
myView.frameX += 10;
UIColor is not mutable; this class is. This also allows changes in both RGB and HSV color spaces (with conversion between the two).
A UIView subclass for rendering very nice-looking pie charts.
A UIView subclass for showing a wipe-vanish animation of an image.
This is a wipe animation (you can do them in other directions than this):
// 1. /----\ // |----| // \----/ // 2. ---\ // ---| // ---/ // 3. -\ // -| // -/ // 4. // //
A UIView subclass for rending a single line between any two points. Yes, you can do this with Quartz; this is easier to use if you just want a few visual lines without diving down into CGContextStuff functions (CG = Core Graphics).
LineView *lineView = [LineView lineFromPoint:CGPointZero toPoint:CGPointMake(20, 30)]; [self.view addSubview:lineView];
Adds the method hmacWithKey: to NSString, which uses SHA256 to produce an authentication code (the HMAC). Use it like this:
NSString *key = @"a9bk342nziAFD234"; // Your private key. NSString *hmac = [messageStr hmacWithKey:key]; // Now send the hmac with the message, and the server can authenticate.
This is a set of macros that can provide line-by-line, nanosecond-resolution timing information for your app. Here's the post about CodeTimestamps.
A struct and collection of C functions to act as a fast, low-level replacement for NSMutableArray. Only appropriate in extremely time-sensitive code. Here's the post about CArray.
This is a config file for the uncrustify auto-formatting tool that can be used to clean up Objective-C h,m files.
Here is a sample command-line to use this config file:
/Applications/UniversalIndentGUI/indenters/uncrustify -c uncrustify.cfg -lOC -f MyFile.m -o MyFile.m
I suggest installing UniversalIndentGUI, which includes uncrustify as a component. The uncrustify library on its own appears to be questionably maintained (I could not get it to install correctly).
